Flying Cat Birdhouse

Christopher Blake grew up in a traveling circus. He learned his craft from his grandfather, a carousel horse carver in Germany. These delightful birdhouses are true American folk art ~ whimsical, fun and guaranteed show-stoppers. Christopher Blake creates these unique works by carving a mold which is then used to make each hand-finished piece. A variety of ingredients are used, from crushed walnuts and limestone to wood dust and sea shells, then finished with his own unique blend of paints. Each piece is signed by the artist. $74.95 at Fat Finch
